Archie's First Day of Puppy Kindergarten!

Happy Monday everyone!

It is me... Archie!

I am so excited to tell you about my first day at puppy kindergarten!

My classes are at the same place Emmitt took his puppy kindergarten classes at 15 years ago!

The Boulder Valley Humane Society building is new, but the positive reinforcement classes are the same. :)

Isn't that fun?

My pawrents love the whole program and have lots of fun helping me with my homework in between my weekly classes.

Here I am heading for the front steps.

I am feeling excited and a bit nervous!

My mom said that is exactly how she felt on her first day of school too!

Now here I am feeling more nervous than excited!

Will there be snacks for all the students dad?


Not only are there snacks, but kong balls filled with peanut butter for every puppy!


I like school!

I am ready to learn!

You mean I get a treat for sitting?

This is fun!

and delicious!

more food, um... I mean lessons please!

This week we learned how to sit, answer to our names being called and try to stop barking at new things.

Good luck on that one!

Everything is new to me, and I must tell everyone at the top of my lungs... "Hello! My name is Archie! It is so nice to meet you!"

Apparently I am told all that sounds like to humans is "Bark, Bark, Bark!"


I will have to get everyone to learn how to speak pug!

I will keep you updated on all my learn'n.

Oh Archie, you look so excited and eager to learn (and adorable of course)! What a great student you are. I hope your mom is giving you real treats and not just a piece of kibble like my Mom tries to pull on me.

And we love your blue harness!

Later little friend!
